KONG LOR EXPERIENCE
This tour will make you an amazing discovery on the edge of Phou Hin Boun, and encounter some of the most beautiful limestone landscapes of the country.
Day 1: We depart from the Green Discovery office in Thakhaek at 7:00am (or 8:00am if the starting point is Ban Nahin along Road No. 8). The drive to the Kong Lor cave will take us about 4 hours. Upon arrival we will meet our local guide and, after some welcome chatting, hit the trek. The trail passes dense jungle and open areas typical for a limestone landscape. We need around six hours to conquer the mountain but will be rewarded by beautiful views. When reaching the valley on the other side we continue walking for two km to Ban Natan, where we stay overnight at a villager's home.
Day 2: After breakfast the owner of the house will hold a small farewell ‘baci’ ceremony for us. We then take a ‘tok-tok’ (small tractor) for 15 minutes to get to our kayaks at the nearby river bank. Our guide will give you some basic but important instructions about kayaking in a cave before we start. We spend two hours to go by boat through the cave. At the cave’s mouth on the other end we have a delicious picnic lunch and take the opportunity to enjoy swimming in the lagoon before returning to Thakhaek by car.
